Trump Aide Forcefully Escorted Out of CNN After Contentious Interview

Trump Aide Forcefully Escorted Out of CNN After Contentious Interview

Miller accused Tapper of being condescending and said CNN has had "24 hours of negative anti-Trump hysterical coverage" - coverage that led to spectacular mistakes.

The White House senior adviser Stephen Miller told CNN's Jake Tapper he was "offended" when Tapper cut him off the air after a contentious interview on Sunday. Tapper said Miller was being "obsequious".

On Monday, CBS News reporter Arden Farhi tweeted out a transcript of Tapper and Miller's exchange when the cameras were off.

Hours before the statement came out, White House officials used appearances on the news shows yesterday to rally behind Mr Trump and try to undermine Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" book, which portrays the 45th U.S. president as a leader who doesn't understand the weight of his office and whose competence is questioned by aides.

Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's former chief strategist, has tried to reverse remarks in which he called the president's son Donald Jr "treasonous".

"That's why they don't put you on TV", Tapper said.

"Miller also lamented Steve Bannon for making "grotesque comments" in the book, ones he said are "so out of touch with reality" and vindictive".

"We'll discuss, as I said when I announced that he was going to be doing the physical, we'll have a readout of that after that is completed and we'll let you know at that time", Sanders said. "But what I can tell you unequivocally is that the allegations and insinuations in this book, which are - which are a pure work of fiction, are nothing but a pile of trash through and through".




"I wonder if it would help if all Trump spokesmen were as smart as Stephen Miller", Coulter tweeted in August, after Miller's first, and so far only, showing at a White House press briefing.

CNN editor-at-large Chris Cillizza said the Trump administration feel unfairly targeted by the news organisation as it does not like being held accountable for baseless claims made to the public.

Tapper ended the interview shortly after.

Tapper had been asking questions about Trump's fitness, and queried Miller about a weekend tweet in which Trump wrote that he was a "very stable genius".

"That just tells Trump supporters and signals to them and gives them more of an inclination to believe and argue that CNN is pro, I guess, coup, almost", says Houck.

Miller became unhinged quickly, prompting Jake Tapper to state the obvious: he was putting on a performance for an audience of one: President Donald Trump.

The president also blasted Tapper as a "CNN flunky". Reports said Mr Trump was said to be furious about its contents and the apparent betrayal contained therein.
